I'm Jan, I live in the North of England with my lovely family; one husband and two delightful (most of the time) kids.I'm a buyer for a UK retailer, but spend my spare time reading and writing. And then any other spare time I spend online! I'm a moderator here at MNFF and have been known to beta read occasionally!.
I have one novel-length fic up (The Daughter of Light) and am currently working on its sequel, The Severed Souls. It wasn't supposed to be about my OC and Snape, but they ended up taking over! I've also got a few one-shots up and copious amounts of poetry.
Alan. You are not lost. You live on in our words.
For the first stanza alone, this poem is worthy of any anthology. What a fantastic affirmation of life. I may well print out that first stanza and stick it to my backboard at work to remind me that I am alive!! To be able to write something profound with so few words is a gift, my friend. I hope to see more of your poems in the queue! (and you could take out those Potter quotes and this would stand alone as a great piece of work)
Author's Response: Wow thankyou. I've been writing poetry for years but I've never let anyone read them before, and this was my first attempt at Potter poetry so it was quite scary for me to submit. So thankyou for your encouragement, it has made my day :)
